Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester said in a news release that the suspect entered the store just after 10 p.m., demanded the money, and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The suspect was described as a man believed to be in his 30s wearing all black with a black baseball hat. He was wearing a black mask with white flowers on the mask. The suspect was approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and possibly wearing glasses.

No one was injured in the incident and police are continuing to investigate.
